4 stars I bought Calling All Stations when it was first released and over the last 15 years I've listened to it many times. I remember, at first, being a little disappointed with the album. However something about it kept calling me back to it. Lately I've been playing it continually because it has become obvious to me that it is one of the strongest pieces of work that Genesis has produced. No it's not "Selling England......." or "Trick of the Tail" or "W&W" or "Duke". But it's not meant to be. It is the Genesis sound of 1996/7 and it works well. And it still stands the test of time now in 2013. While each song on the album is a strong composition, in my opinion One Man's Fool and Alien Afternoon are as good as anything that Genesis has ever done. The Dividing Line is also up there with the best. Can I suggest that some of the negative reviewers revisit the album and spend some time with it. When you give it a few more plays, you may find that you'll pick up on things that you hadn't heard in it previously. I know I did. I will continue to listen to Calling All Stations every once in a while and I'm satisfied to give it 4 Stars.
